Prospect Profile: Chris McKenzie

Chris McKenzie School: Arizona State
Ht: 5-8.5 Wt: 185 40: 4.42 Year: 4Sr

Bio: Junior college transfer who started the past two seasons posting 42/1/7 as a senior, after 39/2/4 the prior year.

Positives: Explosive cornerback with outstanding speed. Quick transitioning off the line to run with opponents, fast down the field and positions himself to make a play on the ball. Reads receivers' eyes and always working to get a hand in to deflect away the ball. Fluid back pedaling in reverse.

Negatives: Undersized, has difficulty in a battle and does not time pass defenses well. Lacks the explosive break to the pass.

Analysis: A terrific athlete with outstanding straight-line speed, McKenzie possesses marginal instincts and size for the NFL. Needs a lot of work to improve his overall game and may be best on a practice squad for a season.
